High Resolution Vertical Aerial Photography Services
Vertical aerial photography for engineering studies and orthorectified photography projects. Our direct vertical aerial photography projects are completed with belly mounted cameras on the underside of our helicopters. Vertical aerial photos can be scaled to your required parameters and can be easily stitched together in Adobe Photoshop and many CAD, Computer Assisted Designing software programs.
Vertical Aerial Photo of St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis, TN
Project Description:The project consisted of vertical aerial photography of the railroad tracks and adjacent roads and intersections. The vertical aerial photos were used to reconstruct the accident scene and determine the cause of the accident and develop recommendations for improvements in the area to minimize future risks.
Project Description:The project consisted of vertical aerial photography of 15 streams across West Tennessee between Memphis and Paris Tennessee. The vertical aerial photos were used to evaluate erosion progress along the streams and develop means to restrict future stream erosion.
Project Description:The project consisted of vertical aerial photography of a 30 mile stretch of levees and railroad beds being converted into a biking and walking trail. The vertical aerial photos were used to create stitched orthorectified depictions of the 30 mile engineering project. The need for minimized cloud and tree coverage and the need for all photos to be from the same elevation created a unique flying scenarios including managing wind conditions impacting the flight path of the helicopter. The photos included above consist of two sections of the project, both approximately 6 miles long. Remote control of the camera from inside the helicopter cockpit allowed for a frame rate shoot speed controlled at one photo every two seconds to provide the overlapping needed for effective orthorectified photos.
Have an immediate need, our digital and video services can produce your needed output within minutes of our arrival back at the airport. We have portable power and can process images and prints from our vehicle. Within an hour of the job you can have your digital images or your video.
All of our aerial photography digital images can be purchased in digital format or plain or framed images. We have other aerial photographs of the same subject so if you do not see the aerial photograph you need, please let us know.
